Why is it that they always make these cool concept cars (for example, AWD Focus with Turbo) and then when they release the car in the US, it's some neutered version (180 HP Focus SVT?! Give me a break!)
American manufacturers are always complaining about poor sales and discontinuing sports car lines. Well if they would just build something decent, people would buy it!!!!! :fmad:
Looks liek all the concept cars/performance models become in AU or EU. it is a pretty sad state that they can not release anything good for us in the states. it is obvious we want the cars why not release them to the public here.
Australia have had some great concepts too like the 300+ coupe and the Herrod stroked Sony Xplode XR8.
I feel Ford US need a hypo hero car. Chev have the vette and Chrysler have the Viper. I just dont feel the svt mustang cuts the cake and the cobra R is too rare and expensive.
I would love for one day that Ford Global lets all Ford consortiums export all thier cars to all different countries as exchnage for one another. eg cosworth focus and Ticfkrd Falcons to the states for Mustangs and so on.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
